Audi, VW 3.0 litre TDI engine Inlet manifold fault

Inlet manifolds hidden in engine bay.
New inlet manifold to be installed

An increasingly common problem on 3.0 TDI engines is a fault relating to the inlet manifolds.

The inlet manifolds, which are mostly hidden in the heart of the engine bay can become a problem.

There are mechanical flaps that are moved and controlled by an electric motor. The motor can become faulty, the shaft that has the butterfly flaps attached can become worn and the butterfly flaps can break. Any of these faults can cause your engine warning light to come on.
